Food Truck Rally & Sunset 5K

Saturday, October 5, 2019

Early Bird Registration opens Wednesday, May 1 and is $15, but only for the first 500 participants! (Registration link coming soon.)

Kick off Registration Opening Day at the Cheesy Teaser!

On Wednesday, May 1, Toasty Cheese and Cupcakes for Courage will pop up on campus to provide a glimpse of the glory that is a food truck rally. Find the trucks at the north entrance of the Student Resource Center from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Not-So-Fine Print:
No need to register for the 5K or Youth Dash to enjoy the Cheesy Teaser May 1 or the event on Saturday, October 5. However, you *should* take advantage of the Early Bird fees before it's too late!

*New This Year*

Drum roll, please...

  • Early Bird fees beginning May 1 are $15 for only the first 500 participants and special prices for staff, faculty, and alumni.
  • New team categories: Fastest, Team Spirit, and Largest (Big news! No maximum number of team members for any category!)
  • Opportunities to win Food Truck Rally vouchers during early packet pickups!


So where do the proceeds go?

Student scholarships, of course!  Each of the 15 high school districts served by COD has a dedicated scholarship for their graduates who choose to attend COD. When you register for either the 5K Run/Walk or the 100-Yard Youth Dash, designate your race fee to the high school district of your choice.

Scholarship applications for each high school district are open through Friday, May 31! If you know a 2019 graduate with a 3.0 GPA, please inform them of this great opportunity to receive $500 toward tuition and/or books. Applicants must have COD student identification numbers to apply for the scholarship.
